I have conquered the French tree

I am so happy. As of a few minutes ago on November 26, 2016, I have completed my French tree.

I know a lot of posts are like this, but I would love to share this. :)

I first started to learn French because of a passion for this French singer called Christine and The Queens. She was amazing, so I decided to learn it.

One year, countless hours of sleep that was lost, and many friends later, I have finished it. This has been my dream for a long time, and I am happy about that. Halfway through I wasn't so confident anymore, but I couldn't give up because of how far I was. I always start studying when I am bored or going through a rough patch.

I know, though, that me finishing the tree is only the beginning on the path to fluency. I must practice, because practice makes perfect.

Merci, Duolingo team and Duolingo users, for being the amazing people you are. I can't imagine my life without languages, and that's because of this amazing website.

edit: Thank you so much for your nice comments. :)

Congratulations. It's strange, I don't know you but I really am so happy for you. I love seeing posts from people who have accomplished their duolingo goals as it makes me even more determined to complete mine.

Same here, I love seeing that people are level 25 at languages like Polish and Welsh, because it just gives me a feeling that yes, this will be possible!

It took me a year, but half way through I didn't do much. So if you keep going, maybe you'll finish it in less than a year.

Great job on your accomplishment SpiralStat! I was curious, I never heard of Christine and The Queens. What songs do you recommend from them?

November 27, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SpiralStat

Hmm... I think her best songs are Science Fiction Nuit 17 à 52 Christine And her cover of "Photos Souvenirs" is good too (her songs are in French but some are in English)

Good job! I have a question,do you feel confident while speaking in French right now? Or did you ever have an opportunity to practice with a native,if so how did it go?

November 27, 2016

I don't feel as confident when speaking it out loud in person (when someone says "SAY SOMETHING IN FRENCH" my mind goes absolutely blank) but I'm friends with a native online and she said my French writing is good, we have ever video chatted before though , so I don't know if my speaking is that good. But I can listen to it and get an understanding of what theyre saying:)
